LibriVox recording of Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. Read by Elizabeth Klett with a full cast.
Mansfield Park is Jane Austen's 1814 novel focusing on Fanny Price, the daughter of a poor Portsmouth family, who is taken to live with her aunt and uncle Bertram's family on their estate at the age of ten. Surrounded by her wealthy and privileged cousins, and continually reminded of her lower status by her bullying Aunt Norris, Fanny grows up timid and shy, but with a strong sense of ethics, partly instilled by her kindly cousin Edmund. Fanny's gratitude and friendship for Edmund gradually grow into love, but the introduction of Mary and Henry Crawford, a captivating sister and brother, into the neighborhood of Mansfield Park, confuses and complicates the affections of the Bertram household. In this recording, LibriVox volunteers lend their voices to the colorful cast of characters in Austen's classic novel. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)

Mansfield Park is read well, and as in the description "dramatically" read. Elizabeth Klett is an excellent reader, especially in the Jane Austen books. She should read Nancy Drew books, and I would put a link to my blog www.nancydrewblogforyou.wordpress.com to the reading! I love the reading, and in conclusion:Thank you!
